I have a number of writing projects.
I like to consider it as though I’m writing several books over the course of a few years. “The Story” is the biggest, but that’s also the one I’m preparing for through writing shorter things.
Here they are in order of priority:
This is a minor component to “The Story.” My plan is to write 300 short stories, curate the best 50, then self-publish to have a physical presence for the project and to advertise the project around.
– As of November 2018, I have ~50 short story candidates.
Casual book projects
Triple series: Moving Zeal, Downsizing Zeal, and Selling Zeal
I’m moving. I’ve always been around clutter and hoarding, so this process has been helping me detach from that. If these essays help me better myself in that regard, and if I can better manage this sense of chaotic collecting, this may be my first self-published book.
Now that I’m moved, I’m surrounded by things I don’t care about. These are objects that I acquired for cheap or free and when I had a mindset of trying to do as much as I could with as much as I could, rather than now, where I want to focus on bettering myself and others.
What do you do with those objects you no longer care about? It’s easier to donate than to sell. There isn’t the friction of dealing with the negotiation. I won’t be doing much selling, but the selling I do, I’ll write about, as an experiment in getting slightly uncomfortable.
My plan is to write these essays until I drop below 200 pounds, then either curate into some sort of autobiography or just keep this up until I get some formal education on fitness and diet then do something more proper. For now, I’m just writing to gather data.
Perhaps the same plan as the Sammohini Arc. This might be more of an altruistic publication to help out others as opposed to getting money, but you never know.
The positive side to the negatives of Sober Living.
